Hey guys,

I have recently become curiouse about the BMW 850 models. But i am having trouble finding any worthwhile info on the car? can some one please help fill me in? car specs, issues with the car (i have read some ppl say something about the unreliability of the V12), the handeling, and so on. thanks in advance guys. Sorry if its a dumb Q but u cant learn unless u ask right? .

I responded to your question in that other guy's thread:

http://www.bmw-forums.com/forum/index.php?...=0&#entry316199

Just to add on

840 has 282 hp and 310 ft lbs
850 296hp/332 ft/lbs
850 csi
Horsepower: 372 hp
Torque: 402 ft-lbs.

An 840ci would be a much better choice than an 850i/ci as they are not far down on power, but weigh less and are easier/cheaper to work.
